Gentle reminder to pay attention to headlines and what’s trending each week as hackers certainly do, and like to, take advantage of increased searches and traffic. Last week, it was the Fortnite mobile app craze. This week it’s a political hot button issue.

  • Anti-tampering DRM added to Play Store apps
  • AsiaHitGroupGang strikes again with fake Android app installer, Sonvpay.C
  • Warrants to be required to get mobile device location data
  • RAMpage exploit breaks down barriers between mobile apps and operating systems
